“Beautiful dog friendly Peak District farm cottage with great views”
Reviewed November 18, 2017 for a stay in August 2016

Foxhollies is in a gorgeous location with an amazing view across the Manifold Valley and close to beautiful Dovedale. It's the perfect place to go for wonderful dog walking and peace and quiet. Alstonefield village is charming and very friendly with 2 lovely oldfashioned pubs, the Watts Russell and the George within walking distance, both with fantastic food! Foxhollies itself is really cosy with a great fire and traditional huge farmhouse kitchen and classic wood beamed ceilings and quirky furnishings to make you feel at home! The garden is enclosed and perfect for barbecues and sitting out to enjoy the sunset. Wish I still could live there!

“From the door walking on the Dove and Manifold”
Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We were only the third letting for this cottage, which is why there arent many reviews yet but this is a great little place. Charming Foxhollies Cottage perches at the top of the hill at the edge of the village with far reaching views across the Staffordshire Dales. Alstonfield is a small, peaceful and pretty village, perfectly located for walks from the door of the cottage along either the Dove or Manifold valleys. (Ordnance survey sheet 24). There is a working farm immediately behind the house, and we enjoyed watching the shepherd working his flock with a sheepdog in the field opposite.
The cottage has two rooms on the ground floor, a large kitchen dining room with all mod cons, and a smaller sitting room with views over the valley, shuttered windows and a woodburning stove.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, one iron framed king size bed with ensuite and also a single bedroom off it. And another bedroom can be either twin or kingsize (zip and link), this bedroom has a small shower room next to it, virtually en suite. Stripped boards, pine furnishings and light colours upstairs, it felt fresh and clean. Beds were made up with pretty sheets, and lovely soft towels for the bathrooms.
We didnt really spend lots of time at the house as we were out all day, but it was a perfect base for a few days walking.
The George in the village is excellent (300yards), we took the kids and and dog and had a superb meal by the fire in the bar, The Devonshire in Hartington has more standard pub fare and a very nice landlord!

Amazing location on edge of Alstonefield village. Walks out the door, and views are superb. The kitchen diner was huge and great for cooking, cosy nights by the fire. 5 mins walk into village with a great pub. The garden was lovely and secure for our dog. We will be back.
